Fake Maps Produce Confusion
by Sephzero, Staff Writer
Palanthas - Confusion wracks Palanthas as a recent discovery of fraudulent maps of the city has delivered confusion and uproar from visitors and residents alike. The City Guard has already received dozens of fraudulent maps. Sellers of maps in Palanthas have commenced pulling their stock in order to search for any possible fraudulent maps in inventory.
Claiming to be the map of the city of Palanthas, to a casual observation the fake maps appear no different from an actual map of the city. However, a closer inspection reveals that numerous buildings and street layouts are completely different from the actual city layouts. Even further inaccuracies are the labeling of many sites in the city.
"It is disturbing that this problem has managed to reach such a large scale," Brent Grawfellow, Captain of the City Guard, reported, "only the recent spike in these maps appearance made us aware this problem even existed."
The City Guard has not able to determine whether the fraudulent maps is the work of a single supplier or more malicious sabotage against the city. Patrols have been sent to the local map makers for investigation, but the City Guard did warn that the problem may originate from outside as well.
Already the fraudulent maps have sparked outrage and confusion to many visitors to the city whom often rely on maps for navigation through the vast streets and buildings of Palanthas.
"It's simply an outrage that things had been allowed to reach this level," Graps Coppershield, a Hylar Dwarf visitor, complained, "I came to this city to its wonders and this map nearly sent me into the thick of those nasty brushes that infest this place."
